Since Biden took over as Commander-in-Chief a noticeable shift in tone and messaging has emanated from the U.S. Military. Instead of projecting strength and patriotism, Generals seem to be going for a softer approach by allowing Far-Left “wokeness” to creep through and invade the ranks. Diversity, Critical Race Theory, Transgenderism, Marxism — all tenets of Left-Wing ideology are currently swirling around every military branch. This was not the case when Former President Trump was in charge.
Trump has lamented the leftward push of the U.S. military after his administration worked so tirelessly to bolster it. On Wednesday the Former President called for the resignation of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley.
The Former President said of the highest ranking military officer his “greatest fear is upsetting the woke mob” not protecting America’s national security.
“Gen. Milley ought to resign, and be replaced with someone who is actually willing to defend our Military from the Leftist Radicals who hate our Country and our Flag,” Trump said in his statement.

Trump’s call for resignation comes after Gen. Milley was asked by Democrat lawmakers to testify in front of congress in defense of the military’s teaching of Critical Race Theory and other Far-Left gobbledygook. Milley’s testimony became incredibly controversial when he vehemently defended the Radical Left, admitted to being an avid reader of Communist literature, and supported the current practice of demanding military officers to be trained on Critical Race Theory.
“I want to understand white rage. And I’m White,” the General said.
“I want to understand White rage. And I’m White.”

Watch: Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, just now on Critical Race Theory, ‘Wokeness’ & Jan. 6. “I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist. So what is wrong with understanding…the country which we are here to defend?” pic.twitter.com/KsRtOoWN0w

These aren’t the first problems Trump has had with Gen. Milley.
According to Trump, Milley “practically begged” him not to send the military to stop the Black Lives Matter domestic terrorists from destroying Washington D.C. After the Lafayette Square incident, Gen. Malley issued a groveling and embarrassing apology for walking next to his Commander-in-Chief to St. John Church.
Subsequent watchdog reports from the Interior Department have vindicated Trump on this incident, proving he did not order Capitol police to forcefully remove protestors for a publicity photo shoot.
Trump also accused the veteran general of making up a “false story that he yelled at me in the Situation Room. This is totally Fake News.
“If he had displayed such disrespect for his Commander-in-Chief I would have fired him immediately.”
And as far as Milley’s congressional testimony, Trump said the general “actually defended Critical Race Theory being shoved down the throats of our soldiers.”
“This Marxist, racist anti-American propaganda has no place in our Military,” said Trump.
“I banned these training programs, now Biden and the Pentagon have resumed them. As soon as possible, Congress must defund this racist indoctrination.”
Last Friday, Trump told reporters that Milley’s comments before Congress were “pathetic.”
“I watched the statements of some others, the head of the Navy,” he said. “(They) didn’t talk that way when I was around. I can tell you they didn’t talk that way or I would have gotten rid of them in two minutes. But in particular, (the head of the) Navy and Milley, just sad, pathetic statements.”
